Why Bodmas?

My choice of domain name …..

Have you wondered why I chose the name Bodmas? When studying maths at secondary school I was intrigued by the rule of bodmas. In mathematics and computer programming, the order of operations (sometimes called operator precedence) is a rule used to clarify unambiguously, which procedures should be performed first in a given mathematical expression.

For example on some modern day calculators:
24+13-2*8/1 = 21 (Incorrect Answer)

Following bodmas rule:
(((24+13)-2)*8)/1 = 280
After each part of the calculation, hit the equals button on your calculator to get the result in red.
